The Fiery Gizzard trail is a treasure trove for waterfall hunters. Sycamore, Black Canyon, Hanes Hole, and Blue Hole Falls are all named falls found along the trail. There are at least three other unnamed falls, #1 and #2 discussed previously. Not all of them are particularly tall, but that’s made up for by sheer number of falls.
I visited in late December, and the hike was extremely enjoyable. It was slightly cloudy out, but the temperature was still nice (for a Michigander). This is one of the last falls that I found on the hike, which I couldn’t tell you the exact length. The Fiery Gizzard Trail as a whole is something like 13 miles long, though I stopped after Sycamore Falls. This specific falls might be more impressive after a lot of rain, though I still found it to be enjoyable.
- As you enter Tracy City along US-41, you should notice a sign indicating the Fiery Gizzard Trail/Grundy Forest.

- From here, follow either the Fiery Gizzard Trail or the Day Loop Trail, which can both lead to this falls, though you’ll pass by different waterfalls along the way.
